Huckleberries Online

HBO — Bayview Herb

Herb: “There was apparently a technical glitch which precluded people linking from Huckleberries to my somewhat derisive post re: the Vagina Monologues. While I suspected the editorial elves in Spokane, since my link and blog were blocked, I have been informed that that is not the case. Since it has been restored, and you can now reach here thru the S/R, I have to assume that whatever went wrong was at my end. I also believe in the tooth fairy. I in troubleshooting, was able to link to other blogspot sources, and since I was careful to eliminate the obvious, have come to the conclusion that the editorial staff in Spokane might have slipped a troll into the picture. In the future, I will try to be more resectful, sirs…”

DFO: You’re jumping at shadows here, Herb. And to test that theory, I’ll provide a link directly to the edgy comment here. If it goes down again, we’ll have to start looking for suspects. BTW, we’re looking for gremlins, not a blog troll. A blog troll is someone who haunts a site, posting flames that stir up other posters.
